Holiday Wish Book: Pirelli World Challenge TC Season

The Pirelli World Challenge TC (Touring Car) class is shaping up to be quite interesting in 2017. While multiple makes and models will run, there is a good chance that the fat part of the field will be made up of BMW M235i Racing cars. BMW finished first in two elements of the 2016 TC championship, the drivers points and the team points, which bodes well for drivers running the M235i in 2017. We’ve profiled the car.

Holiday Wish Book: WRR Spyder Stryke Half-Zip Jacket

We love racing, and part of what we love is hanging out after the race at places like Siebkens or Turn 12 or Bubba’s with our racer friends talking about the day’s events. In the early season, temperatures are cool and we like to wear a comfy and stylish sweater for apres-race “discussions”.

Track Decal of the Week: Road America

As auto racing was beginning to gain popularity in the United States in the 1940s and early 1950s, most events were held on public streets. Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin’s open road course was among many across the country that played host to numerous SCCA events throughout the era. After legislation brought a ban to racing on public roads due to safety concerns brought on by a crash at Watkins Glen in 1952, a man by the name of Clif Tufte brought together members of the Chicago Region of the Sports Car Club of America to develop plans to build a permanent private road course in Elkhart Lake.

“The BIG Engine That Could” DVD Gets a Trailer

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the team has been hard at work putting together the documentary chronicling Winding Road Racing’s journey to, and participation in, last year’s 25 Hours of Thunderhill. Piloting a Ford Mustang Boss 302S, the crew took on the longest race on the 2013 race season calendar, and as an added bonus, you may recall that they did pretty well in their class.
